Why do people spend $100+ on Turtle Beach brand headsets?

They're for over privileged kids and picky people. Glad I'm not that way. $5 name brand M$ is enough. I'd rather have 2 extra games than slightly better sound quality from tight headache inducing muffs which rub rough around the lobes. Not comfy. They're probably the same people who buy avatar t-shirts.

Also, people buy for the simple reason they can.

Because a lot of people like being able to listen to their games and hear everything. If you play late at night, or are in an area where you should be relatively quiet...these types of headsets are terrific!

Especially the surround sound headsets. A surround sound system in many apartments is a no-go..so you can get that and be just peachy.

Hope that answers your question TC.


Right on the $$$ right there. Try playing when your girl is like 12 feet from TV with sound up, not gonna happen i like having all my teeth ;)


Lucky for me, I live alone and have never had to deal with that.

I got the turtle beaches x12's over a year ago when I still had a standard definition tv and used them for about a month only. When I got my new hd3d tv I stopped using them since the speakers on my new tv were really nice and just had no need for the headset anymore. Also the month that I used them they really hurt my ears when I used them for more them 40 mintues towards the end I got used to them but I didn't really like them.

I recently got Turtle Beach X11's from a friend, really diggin' them so far. As others have said, it's also nice when you want to game quietly.

Same reason people convince themselves they need to upgrade their iPhone every year.
The "Gotta buy what other people say is cool otherwise I'm not cool" mentality.

because they have great sound quality and the regular headset only does 360 chat and nothing else, turtle beaches can be used for 360, ps3, and pc.
